I made $60.16 today!!!

That's enough money to pay my water bill or fill up a tank of gas.  It only took me a few minutes to make this money.  I have several things listed on Craigslist at any given time. These are items that are collecting dust around my house or we have outgrown.  Today the big seller was a metal detector.  It has been in my garage for several years.  I cleaned it up and made 60 bucks.
Here are a few suggestions for selling on Craigslist:
1.  Make sure it is clean.
2.  Make sure to post a picture.  No one wants to buy something without seeing.
3.  Stay safe. Meet the purchaser at a neutral location, ie a grocery store parking lot.
4.  Depending on how fast you need the money, you can price it at any price and leave the post active as long as you want.
5.  Remember Craigslist is FREE!
Have fun and good luck!
Oh, by the way, the $0.16, I found it in the Wal-Mart parking lot.

Ha! Love the part about the .16. I have lots of junk in my extra bedroom that needs to go before it becomes baby's room in October. You just inspired me to list it...
